Changes since Beta2

* Oracle Schema update (Chad Kreimendahl)
* spo_database updates (Roman Danyliw)
* spp_stream4 on SPARC fixes
* small memory problems (pointed out by Magnus Almgren)
* spo_xml uses classfication id now (Roman Danyliw)
* --with-mysql=/blah should now work against the /blah installation

For snortdb users, there is no need to update your schema if you are
using 104

The only change that I am anticipating between 1.8.4-beta3 and 1.8.4
proper is the movement of several additional rules from the HEAD
branch into 1.8.4 and moving proven experimental rules into their
final reseting place.

If you keep track of the current snapshot rules at
http://www.snort.org/downloads/snortrules.tar.gz, this will not affect

Help Needed:

We are trying very hard to have a great snort.org rules database full
of information to help us all spend less time researching events that
our sensors pick up.  Just pick 1 signature from
http://www.snort.org/snort-db/unfinished.html, queue it up and submit
the template ( http://www.snort.org/snort-db/snort-sid-template.txt )
to snort-sigs at lists.sourceforge.net

Our full request for help is here:


I'd also like extend thanks to everyone that has been contributing to
the database.  Putting in a few definitions really helps out.
